Behind the scenes of an author, signing 700 books before last night’s dinner event. An efficient signature helps.

Hey Chris, do you ever sign so many books that you mess up your own signature? I mean, I know that you’re an astronaut and all, but nobody’s perfect. ;)

Dr. Krantz and Clyde mounted at the Smithsonian. Still my favourite thing ever.

Before Krantz died, he said to Smithsonian anthropologist David Hunt, “I’ve been a teacher all my life and I think I might as well be a teacher after I’m dead, so why don’t I just give you my body.” When Hunt agreed, Krantz added, “But there’s one catch: You have to keep my dogs with me.”

Awwwwwww :)

This is the happiest skeleton I’ve ever seen

Assistant Professor Chao-Lin Kuo surprises Professor Andrei Linde with evidence that supports cosmic inflation theory.
